Photos of Quinn Gormely or How a Change of Environment Impacts Creativity

 

Quinn Gormely these photos are for you.  They were taken more than three years ago and I’m sorry that I did not really get around to looking at them until yesterday.  You are an amazing fun, witty, fabulous, generous and caring person.  Looking forward to seeing you soon; either in the U.K., B.C., or Taipei.

Chris Matolcsy

I met Chris at teacher’s collage in 2000. We because friends because we could not stand the conservative attitudes that permiated out of every soul we seemed to meet. There are a lot of funny memories from that year. Some I should keep to myself because my parents might read this; but most involved comparing notes on our relatively pathetic dating experiences and helping each other survive different social situations which were either helped or hindered by local intoxicants.

Color or Black and White Photography?

When it comes to photography many purists prefer black and white for the medium’s simplistic aesthetic that isolates the visual subject. Traditionally the medium of black and white is preferred for portrait photography and is used to produce a more raw documentary style.

Color photography can capture the vivid details of surroundings and reflect the beauty of a landscape, skin tone, or subject’s eyes. In this post I am including two similar photographs; one in black and white and one color. Which do you prefer?

Britney Spears shows it off

Quite often I would have a nightmare about this particular situation. You go to work or a social gathering and discover that your private parts are exposed. However, that embarrassment is now a new reason to be featured in the news. Over the past month influential teen stars like Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Lindsey Lohan have all gone out without panties and given the media crotch shots. To me this is a bit much and I can’t help be feel sorry for someone who thinks that giving an indecent crotch flash will generate a positive response.

Note: I am not going to post the crotch shots that are circulating around the internet. The photos included are enough bad taste for one day.

Taiwan is a Bad Fashion Influence

Being a perfectionist can have its advantages and anyone who knows me understands how particular I can be about my clothes. Everything must match and be simple with a modern asymmetrical design. No prints, beads, or too much metallic.

Acceptance, Love, Forgiveness, and Understanding

For the past few days I have been getting back in touch with people from all different facets and parts of my life. The past, the present, the old, the young, the new, the forgotten, rivals, grudges, enemies, old lovers, old boyfriends; people who you were glad never to talk to again, people who you never could admit caring about. It’s really been quite incredible, exciting, and overwhelming. Needless to say I feel very lucky to communicate with such a diverse and dynamic group of people.
